This is light lunch for a mixed crowd.

1 - 7 ounce chicken breast sliced per 2 salads (70 breast)
OK if you are plating, you will probably need 38 pounds
You need a vegetarian choice such as cottage cheese or garbanzos for the non chicken eaters, see below

12 pounds of mixed greens
12 hearts of romaine
greens OK
8 pounds of cherry medley tomatoes sliced 12 pounds
9 English cucumbers diced 13 pounds

I strongly recommend you add 2-3 items, esp if this is a fundraiser or "nice" event;
1 gallon olives (2-3 per plate)
8-9 pound can artichoke quarters, 1 ounce per plate
2 #10 cans garbonzo beans or 3 bean salad 2 tablespoons per plate

Here is a guide for many other options, you need 1 1/2 the amount for 100, because of the men

3 homemade crackers- Please also put a basket of good rolls on each table, 5 pounds butter and 18 pounds rolls for this group

2.5 gallons of salad dressing served in 2 ounce containers
the plan for 100 table shows a breakdown on the proportions of each type.
